After some thinking, I realized why Christmas has such a hold me—it’s the hope that comes with the holiday. Christmas drips with hope, and I know of few things that are more powerful than hope. I’m not talking about the “hope” that politicians (on both sides) bandy about during debates and speeches. Rather, I’m speaking of, well . . . actually, I’m talking about different levels of hope. Let me explain.
I won 1st place in the 1st/2nd Quarter 2014 "America's Funniest Humor!"(TM) Writing Contest held by HumorPress.com. My winning entry, “Heaven, Hell, and a Passing Grade” is about me trying to find out if I’m going to Heaven or Hell in the afterlife. What could be funnier than being caught in between eternal salvation or damnation?
